Description from the packaging.

All hands to your Battle Stations!

Prepare for Action!

It's World War II. You're in command of your own Fletcher class destroyer in this fast-paced action-packed simulation.

You must protect the American fleet by searching out and destroying elusive enemy submarines that lurk below the ocean's surface. At the same time, you'll need to protect yourself from their torpedoes. Because as you're hunting them...they're hunting you! All the action takes place in real time: so you need to act quickly.

Start as an Ensign and work your way up the Hall of Valor as you receive promotions (and demotions!), medals, new commands, and new missions until you finally reach retirement as a Rear Admiral.

  • Grand overhead perspective shows entire battle area.
  • "Zoom-in view" shows close-up overhead view along with enemy torpedoes.
  • Challenge increases as you gain experience and earn promotions.

Your ship's fate is in your hands. You control everything: your speed, heading, depth-charge settings and release, sonar and much more.
